Hook: Daiichi 1180 #14-18

This is a versatile Caddis pattern that can be used as a dry fly or fished in the surface film. The Caddis Green body attracts the fish and the wing gives the fly a life-like movement that drives the fish nuts! It’s a quick and easy tie and a pattern that can help solve the problem when the trout are being picky on many of your favorite Caddis watersheds.
